AudioMoth

Configuration app guide

Step 1: Download and install your platform's configuration app

Go to the app download page and download the installer for the relevant operating system.

Step 2: Add recording periods to the configuration

Enter up to 5 periods in which the device will record and then sleep repeatedly until the period is over.

Step 3: Customise recordings

Set the sample rate, gain and length of the recordings you wish to collect. The app will then calculate the energy and storage consumption of your configuration.

Step 4: Connect AudioMoth device

Set the switch on the side of your AudioMoth device to USB/OFF and attach it to your computer via USB.

Ensure the device has batteries inserted or the configuration will be lost when the device is disconnected and it loses power.

Step 5: Verify connection

Without a successful connection to an AudioMoth device, the configuration app will display a greyed out time, ID and battery level.

When you have successfully connected to your AudioMoth, the device information will no longer be greyed out and the clock should tick upwards from 01/01/1970.

Each AudioMoth possesses an inbuilt clock, used to record at scheduled times and to name recording files. As the clock cannot advance when the device is without battery power, a start time must be given.

Configuring your device will set the start time to your machine's current time in UTC.

Make sure this is done before each deployment. Without the clock set, an AudioMoth in CUSTOM mode will not make any recordings.

Step 6: Apply configuration to device​

Once device is connected, the clock display should begin to update. Click "Configure AudioMoth" to apply configuration. Updated clock times are presented in UTC to remain consistent across timezones. 

Configurations can also be saved to distribute or for later use. Save or load a configuration from the File menu.
